Adversaries have patience and expect to persevere over any and all obstacles that stand in front of them. Their toolkit is not limited and if at first they don’t succeed they’ll try again until they complete their mission. The enterprise’s challenge: find and disrupt them before they fulfill their mission and prepare for the next one, never relinquishing their hold.
Cybersecurity threats to the enterprise continue to move at a pace whereby many organizations are not able to keep up with the known, let alone advanced adversarial tactics. For years the industry has concluded that advanced attacks involve some sort of malware in order to be successful. While malware can be used to exploit a target, there’s an evolution occurring that extends beyond the need for malware or zero-day exploits: attack campaigns. An attack campaign is not just an opportunistic attack aiming to compromise an endpoint, but rather a deliberately focused effort with a specific motive and mission with the intention to persevere until the campaign’s successful conclusion.Details
